Survival Supplies Needed

Hello There!

Those who are houseless often need supplies to help them survive the frequently harsh conditions outside. Below is a list of  the most needed supplies. If you’re able to donate any supplies, please contact us at donate@olymap.org to arrange drop-off/pick-up. Most of these items can be found online through Amazon, or in a variety of local stores in the area. Used things are acceptable as long as they’re clean and in full working condition. (We’re working on an Amazon wish list for easy point and click ordering)

Any help and supplies are greatly appreciated, every bit helps! Together, we can make sure our community’s basic needs are covered.
